WOYWW #402

And as most of you will know from following all the updates, I'm out of hospital, and starting to get back to my desk. Doing everything very slowly, trying to gradually build myself up again, and bolstering myself with painkillers along the way. Another week, and another WOYWW, over at Julia's place, The Stamping Ground.
  A balloon decorating the back of my PC desk chair!
 A huge bunch of flowers were waiting for me when I got downstairs, from my Beloved Hubby.
I'll blog this card I made for Hubby in the next couple of days- one of those that all sort of came together in my head, then everything went where it was supposed to!

I'll be round visiting on and off, I still can't sit too long in one position or my side hurts, so I end up going off for a lie down every now and then.
 But it's wonderful to be back home with Beloved Hubby, and to be able to visit all my Blogging friends.

I do love the card Shaz made and the stamp used on the front is just perfect. Especially as that is the thing we say to each other all the time , it is missing the forever and ever on the end; maybe that will be a new stamp......

So lovely to see you back and creating a beautiful card. I had a peek at your previous post and my heart goes out to you and so admire how you manage to rise about it all. Prayers and positive thoughts on a daily basis for you.

What a lovely surprise from hubby and what a stunning card you made for him too! I think you were a bit greedy with the scar....is it big enough???? Welcome back home, take it easy and enjoy getting inky again! Happy WOYWW! Anne #7

Neet said...

Oh Shaz, it is wonderful to know you are back in the arms of your beloved hubby Doug.
I love the card you made for him, what a gorgeous main focal stamp - now I am wondering who makes that one and my mind goes to a photo at the top on your header (bottom left, am I right?).
Take it nice and easy, don't spend too much time trying to craft, just get well - hopefully see you at PS?
Enjoy your flowers (we didn't do Valentines this year with having my sis here)
Hugs, Neet 12 xxx

I think you and I are both incredibly lucky women with the most wonderful, thoughtful husbands :-D. That card is beautiful (we loved the little rabbit book it came from) and your balloon made me smile. I'm so glad you're feeling better, take it slowly though, lovely gal!
Hugs, LLJ 14 xx

Love your card for hubby and the balloon from hubby.

Hi there Shaz, I love the card and just adore that sentiment.
Pleased to hear you are feeling better and getting back to crafting albeit slowly, take care of yourself, Kate x

Annie said...

There really is no place like home is there? Just be sensible in all you do and let's hope you make good steady progress. I love your card and am smiling at the balloon.....he really is such a lovely guy.
Hope you have a fab week.

Love to you both... xx

Lynn Hardy said...

Aaaw, Doug is definitely a keeper! You two make such a lovely couple. Glad you are feeling up to trying a little card making ( it's beautiful), but please don't overdo it.

Julia Dunnit said...

Cards to make our lovelies happy have a habit of being easier than random people cards! It sure did come together, it's lovely. Bet Doug loved it. Meanwhile, I'm loving your report of taking things easy and the occasional lie down....I'm fully fit and because my desk chair is too low I get a pain in my side from sitting too long, so crikey gal, you're doing really well. Stay slow xxxx

Sarah Brennan said...

Glad you're back home and on the road to recovery. Love the card. I am seriously tempted by that Altenew stamp set. Happy WOYWW Sarah #25

AliWade said...

Happy WOYWW and so glad to see that you have been reunited with your desk (that balloon is gorgeous). I have just read through all of the updates and you have certainly 'had a time'. Doug's updates are brilliant. Not many men would do that. Keep resting and mending. Ali x #26

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

Lovely that you were back home just in time for Valentine's day and what a fantastic card for hubby! Glad to hear you're on the mend, Shaz. Take it easy! I won't get offended if you can't visit me back. Just focus on getting better! xx

Hi Shaz not WOYWWing this week cos totally snowed under, so trying to come up for air...

So very happy you're back in your own home, with your dearly beloved, too!! ... how speshul is that ballooon!!
... and that card?? well it just rocks, loved Doug's comment... read everyone else's too, no wonder it takes me so long to comment.

It's good to hear that you've been able to spend some time at your desk. The card you made for your hubby is beautiful and the sentiment couldn't be a better one. Your balloon looks super and I bet the flowers smelt extra sweet in your own home. Hugs, Barbxx

Lovely to see you home Shaz.
I'm sure you are much happier being at home than in hospital. Hubby did a wonderful job keeping us all up to date with what was going on.
The card looks beautiful.

Elizabeth said...

Hi Shaz, it's wonderful to have you back blogging but be sure to take it easy and pace yourself. There's nothing wrong with going for a lie down when you've just been through what you have. I'm sure you're beloved hubby will agree. The card is gorgeous - the perfect sentiment. Hope you have a good week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #35

Lindart said...

So glad you are back home and on the mend. I love the card - great idea! Thanks for sharing, Lindart #40

Hello Shaz,

Your strength and drive are amazing! I only hope that I can face difficulty with the grace and strength you have. You (and your husband) have been an inspiration for me. I have several auto-immune diseases and can sometimes get so down about it all but then someone like you comes into my life and shows me what strength is all about. Cheers to you and yours!

The Valentine card came together quite well. I love that saying and the stamp(?) of the moon is perfect in the corner of the heart.

Happy WOYWW my dear friend.

Hugs,
Kay (41)

Cardarian said...

Hi Shaz!

I am glad you are out of hospital - they are not nice places to be - I hope you will recover soon! Take it slow and let your good man take care of you! I will be waiting outside the theater next week waiting for Alans operation to be over! Hopefully all goes well!
Enjoy your crafting even if it is just a little bit every day!
Lots of hugs,
Cardarian

Angela Radford said...

I hope you continue to heal & feel better every day! That's a lovely card you made & a happy balloon to decorate your space!

Dorlene Durham said...

Glad you're home and doing better. Be careful not to push yourself. Rest is the best medicine. Your card is lovely. On a funny note, years ago when I had to take pain pills I sure did do some creative projects. LOL. My journaling was so much more descriptive than normal and I came up with things I wouldn't normally. LOL. So get creative!

Twiglet said...

So glad you are home and on the mend - what a lovely card for that lovely man! xxx

sue jones said...

Marit said...

So glad you're back home from the hospital Shaz, I hope you have less pain every day and that you recover quickly. It must make you happy sitting on that chair with a lovely balloon wiggling (?) above your head. Have a great weekend dear, lots of love from foggy Holland. Marit #32

I am very sorry about the incredibly late peek Turns out working on a Wednesday and joining in WOYWW don't go together - so I will just have to have Wednesdays off! I am so glad that you are out of hospital and slowly getting back to your desk - must have been a lovely feeling to be able to sit at it again. The card to hubby is fantastic, I checked out the making of it. Don't you just love it when you get an idea and it comes together first time? I had a dream once I was eating Bear shaped biscuits. The very next day I went to a shop and was confronted with a bear shape biscuit cutter. I had to buy it and now make 'Bearscuits' for xmas/birthdays, etc. Glad you're on the up - take it easy and thanks for sharing - EmbroidRage #6 x
